lyrics

Anonymous nights
Seeking the safety of strangers
I'm losing myself in the crowd
The city is where we used to escape to

The buildings reflect
Watching the rivers of life
Flowing endlessly across the grid

The view from forty four
The glass here is completely clear
Sometimes I jump out the window
And fly through the sky into your arms

Never look down
A sliver of blue is enough
To keep us up, never touching the ground
The city is where we used to escape to

Steeling ourselves
Stealing away
Meeting in between meetings
For a moment or two

I talk to you in my sleep
But I can't remember what we have said
Sometimes I look in the mirror
And see you standing right beside me

Walking for hours
Looking for traces of you in the faces
I push my way through
The city is where we used to escape to
